2008 VW GTI 2.0T DSG/FSI

2008 Volkswagen GTI MIDLIFEGTI - Sacramento 08/31/2012

I drove several other makes while shopping for a car and always went back to the GTI. From the first time I took off on a test drive I knew already this is the car. I will start with the transmission, it is a clutch less automatic with 3 different driving settings. (Drive Mode) The (D) position I use for average driving, highway, around town. (Sport Mode) (S) position I use for spirited driving. Winding roads, Inclines, around town. I recently drove the car to Southern California and used the sport mode through out the Grapevine, and in LA traffic. The sport mode provides a solid band of power. You have 207FT LBS for torque available @ 1750 RPM, no turbo lag. Very spirited acceleration, I have read that it can reach 60MPH in about 6 seconds, I would tend to believe it. It also has the third driving setting which is Tiptronic paddle shifters on the steering wheel. Great fun but I prefer to let the transmission do the shifting. It does it very well. The seats are very comfortable. I have a bad back and recently took a 11/hour trip and no complaints, I could have keep going. Buy 08, 11, 12. Not 06, 07, or 09. Read consumers reviews.

2008 Volkswagen GTI Dominican Roots - Miami, FL 11/13/2012

From test-drive to present day, I have yet to have a day where I am not impressed with this car. You can feel the craftsmanship and precise engineering every time you drive. It's upgrade capabilities are impressive as well.


2008 Volkswagen GTI LRG - L.A., CA 10/30/2010

The GTI makes driving fun. It's like a comfortable, safe Go Kart. Bought it for my son, but I like it so much I want one now.
